Playtime After Class

In my class yesterday I showed the girls how to alter those papers that we don’t necessarily like anymore. See here. Demonstrated with the same piece of paper but because I had already made the Christmas card I showed them how to add colour to the paste mixture and used a different stencil. Didn’t get to finish in class but told the girls I would post when finished.

Totally different from the Christmas card. Used part of the Indigo Blu stamp Dancing Children and also a couple of other stamps from my stash. Because the stamping looked so stark against the muted background I washed over with some watered down gesso. Coloured the images with DI – Faded Jeans, Crushed Olive and Worn Lipstick

What the heck thought I would show the Christmas card again.
Can you believe that both projects started with such a grotty looking piece of paper just goes to show what you can do with inks, stencils, stamps and paints.
